It has been reported that the EU and its 28 Member States are simultaneously depositing their instruments of ratification to ensure that neither the EU nor its Member States commit to obligations belonging exclusively to each other, and some feared a disagreement on each Member State`s share of the EU-wide reduction target. Just like the British vote to leave the EU, the Paris Pact could be delayed.  However, on 4 October 2016, the European Parliament approved the ratification of the Paris Agreement and the European Union deposited its instruments of ratification on 5 October 2016 with several Eu Member States.  Following an election promise, Trump – a climate denier who claimed that climate change was a “scam” committed by China – announced in June 2017 his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. .
